You want a bang for your buck, you want to read hard nosed, hands on research, honest investigations and unique topics seldom if ever covered in such a professional manner? Well, that¿s what you get with Author Troy Taylor¿s books and this one is no different. Campfire stories and interesting evidence, it gets no better my friend!

This was really interesting and I learned some history that I didn't know before. I also learned some new places to look into!

I have several books written by Troy Taylor and I find them interesting from a historical as well as a paranormal standpoint. My only real complaint with Mr. Taylor's books are the numerous typographical errors I have noted in his books. Sometimes this throws the reader off. Otherwise, the books are interesting and informative.
